Washington Post Corrects: Temple Mount is Judaism’s Holiest Site

Following communication from CAMERA, the Washington Post has commendably corrected a photo caption which inaccurately identified the Western Wall as Judaism’s holiest site. In fact, the Temple Mount is Judaism’s holiest site. The error and correction follow:

Error (Washington Post, photo caption, 1/22/13): Naftali Bennett, head of the Jewish Home party, visits the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site.

Correction (1/24/13): A photo caption with a Jan. 22 A-section article about Israeli elections incorrectly described the Western Wall in Jerusalem as Judaism’s holiest site. The wall is the holiest place Jews can pray. Judaism’s holiest place is the Temple Mount.
